It felt so good to run this morning, that is until about mile 10 when my legs decided that they didn't want to run anymore. I am embarrassed to say that I did walk on and off for the last three miles, but I finished the race. Caleb stayed with me the whole time - I tried to make him leave me so he could make his goal time, but he was a HUGE help that last couple miles. Here we are with our "finisher" medals.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FAMILY!!! Oh, I forgot to mention a few other ways the family helped me - we slept at my parents house last night so they could watch the kids this morning, and Paige and Piper both decided to get up at 4:00 a.m. - so my amazing parents tended my kids on very little sleep (did I mention my mom drove down from girl's camp this morning at 1:15 a.m. to help me and that my dad got up with us at 3:00 a.m. to get us off on the road). And then Brittnie surprised me this cute running shirt after I mentioned that I hated all my old high school t-shirts that I have been running in. It felt so good to run again (it has been 5 years since I last raced), thank you family for understanding how important it was for me. My goal was to run under 2 hours, so you can see that I didn't quite make that - so I guess that means that I need to keep running and find another half to run :)
